Wow, extreme closeup! What a great approach and wonderful illustration. Sorry about the root canal ~ ouch! My husband's grandmother used to say..."If you're not true to your teeth, they'll be false to you." Some truth there....

crop or not to crop, that is the question. I think you answered it well. Emphasis on the area creates more visual impact without having to rely on bold colors and sharp contrasts, thus giving it a cleaner feel. Sorry, you already new this. Just wanted to say Good Work.

Great piece. Nice choice to make it a close up like that, it really brings you into it. I also really like the way the texture makes it glisten! So nice and clean...makes my teeth feel a bit unclean, excuse me while I go brush ;)

Fantastic work. Is it done digitally or traditionally? Love the texture.
